Broken Blade Anime

Broken Blade is a popular robot-fantasy manga series by Yunosuke Yoshinaga. It is to be adapted into anime by Production I.G and its subsidiary Xebec.

Manga Cover:

Broken Blade combines the elements of fantasy and robot-action, set in a world where magic and technologies coexist. The land has no fossil fuel resource, so the robots and all other machines are powered by magic. The magic of people are transmitted to quartz, which activate the machine.


Rygart Arrow

An "un-sorcerer", a one-in-a-million oddity in his society. Yet this un-sorcerer ability allows him to pilot an ancient but powerful Golem(battle suit) to fight the invading army.

His Golem; Delfing. Usual Golems have quartz ligament which allow them to be moved by magic, but Delfing doesn't use quartz and no Golem pilot can make it budge. Only Rygart, who possess nil magic can pilot it.

Animated by Production I.G and Xebec, supervised by Tetsuro Amino of Macross 7, directed by Nobuyoshi Habara of Fafner in the Azure, with mech design by Takayuki Yanase of Mobile Suit Gundam 00. I never read the manga before but the mecha design really caught my eye!^^,
